Digestives are the classic British biscuits, perfect to dunk into afternoon tea. They were first made to aid digestion as they contain baking soda which neutralises acids.
These cookies are usually prepared with saturated fats, like butter and palm oil, and refined white sugar. We will instead propose an healthier variation that will give us vegan, gluten-free, dairy-free, and sugar-free digestives. They will be perfect to enjoy at breakfast, on-the-go, or with your afternoon tea of course!
Our biscuits are prepared with rolled oat, nuts, and fruit, all nutritious ingredients which provide lots of fibres, healthy unsaturated fats, vitamins, and minerals.
These are some of the things we have done to make this recipe super healthy:
Used a gluten-free flour, made from ground rolled oat and mixed nuts
Replaced white sugar with applesauce which is made from cooked apple and it is naturally sweet
Replaced eggs with Flaxseeds (flax-egg), which are a good source of omega-3 and help make the recipe vegan.
That's it! Follow our simple steps below and you will crunching these goodies in no time. Once cooked, you can store them in an airtight container for up to 3 days.
